Urban 21 Bag - Rain Cover
Best bag ever purchased
It’s my new everyday bag. I carry it every day and it works for me! I carry my Surface pro and tech gear for my real estate career and love the protective hard shell case too.
Almost all it is claimed to be
It is a pretty bag - people notice it and it's a bit pricey. However... After using the Urban 21 Bag for a few months, here's my basic review. The large compartment is barely wide enough for a notebook that holds 8.5x11 paper, a 13 inch MacBook Pro, a paperback book, an iPad, a travel mouse, a pair of gloves, and a ski hat. Both side pouches are webbed - one side should be webbed for a water bottle, the other side should be a waterproof zippered pouch for a set of keys, or other small items. The solid pouch is good, but it's almost impossible to open when the pair of straps that hold the outer pouch flush, (which collects water and snow), are snapped shut. Also, the large compartment cannot be opened at all when the pair of straps are snapped together. The only way to prevent the outer pouch from filling with water or snow is if the extra cost Urban 21 Rain Cover is used, which makes it impossible to access anything in the bag whatsoever. There is a zipper on the upward facing pouch that can hold items that are relatively small, or flat, but if the bag is full, it's very difficult to reach in a grab whatever is put in there. If I'd not had the bag this long, I'd have returned it for a full refund. Instead, I'll give it to the next person who mentions they like how it looks.
Great useful and convenient!
I love this back pack!! It’s super comfortable to carry around on day trip backing just enough room for a light jacket, water bottle, umbrella and several other pockets for stuff you may need!! The bag isn’t overly large and at the same time it’s not to small either!! I use this bag everyday to carry back and forth to the school I work in and it has tons of storage pockets for everything I may need for the day and it helps keep me better organized! Some of the things I love most about this bag is the materials used in this bag such as the magnetic closures, the hard shell storage compartment to keep everything from my wallet, keysmart and sunglasses safe, the rain cover is super handy when it’s needed and remains easily hidden when not in use, and I love the hidden pocket which can House a wallet my keys, cellphone and key cards needed for work. Overall this bag is great can’t wait to see how it holds up over time! So far so good having only used this bag for little over a month! Would recommend this bag for people who travel and want a smaller sized bag that keeps them super organized, for use as an EDC bag and or for people just out for the day but want to carry some of their gear with them for the day.
